Another visit to Nymans gardens and woods. Walked the woods first using the millennium route. Superbly relaxing and peaceful walks. Came across lots of daffodils, birdlife, a weasel and had a chat with a fox. Had to shoo the fox though when dog walkers arrived with their dogs off the leash, even though there were signs everywhere asking them to... More

Friday morning and the 11am private tour of the house, gave of a very informative insight into the history of wonderful Nymans and its family. The gardens are best seen during the late Spring/summer but the views are breathtaking especially with a gentle mist before the sun burns through. Very good facilities here, cafe, shop and kind, friendly staff. The... More

The main thing to stand out about the house was the knowledge and friendless of the guides which can't be said about some of the NT properties I have visited in East Sussex. Even though most of the house has been destroyed by fire the few rooms which have been well restored are very informative about how people lived in... More

We are not members of the National Trust, but were very impressed with Nymans - even at this time of year. We will return to see the magnolias and explore more of the woodlands.

My wife and I are NT members so went here for a few hours in the nice sunny weather and had a picnic. The grounds are more than big and nice enough to find a quiet spot to relax with our baby. It really is a lovely place to visit and will definitely be returning as it is only 10... More

We go here all the time with our kids. The house doesn't have much so it is mainly about going for a walk, looking at the bugs and plants, etc... They usually have kids activities in the holidays. The ice cream is great and they have good food in the cafe at the entrance. You can usually find some other... More

All the above. The Spring flowers are just beginning to show and are a treat to see. My only gripe is that National Trust food is generally too expensive. If it was a family visiting, the cost would be prohibitive. Lovely place to visit though.

This National Trust property had a superb display of snowdrops, camellias, crocus & cyclamen at the time of a our visit, but it was obvious from the plantings there would be colour galore in the Summer months, with some well laid out long beds ,formal walled gardens etc.in place. Nymans is well known for its ruined / burnt out house,... More

Hello Graham, Thanks for your feedback about your recent visit. The good weather has certainly helped our spring flowers to bloom and, as you say, in the summer it is a very colourful place to visit. Much of the house was lost in a fire in 1947 but several rooms do remain. The house has just reopened for the main... More
